    Do you know what a cheese is?

    A flam diddle. At least that's how we called them when I learned them. Here's an exercise that without the cheeses it's rather trivial. It took me a while to get this clean at 140 bpm. Here's the video of me playing if you want to play along. Attached is the exercise.

    Quiet cymbals....

    I got the Zildjian low volumes and the remo silent strokes because I had a baby and Im very happy with them. They feel really nice but I do miss the pop of a snare with a normal head. Theyre loud enough to cover up a normal conversation but not loud to the point where it would bother the person...

    Took the new kit out last night

    The color is phenomenal! Im curious to know why the floor toms are tilted. Do you see a difference when you play or is it an asthetic thing? Nice set ????????

    Top ten rudiments

    Very good exercises. Working on rudiments always cleans up my technique and adds words to my drumming vocabulary. I don't have all 40 down yet but my favorite for sure is paradiddlediddles

    How do you jump back in?

    A full-time job, engineering school, and becoming a parent has cut away from my playing this last year. I'm about to go on a summer break from school and I want to spend more time with my little one and also jump back in to playing regularly. I am interested to know what your approach would be...

    Can we talk about endorsements?

    How did you go about contacting the company? I actually have been using Vater drumsticks for 4 years and I haven't used anything else since. So they would be someone I would contact.

    Can we talk about endorsements?

    Hello DF, To anyone with endorsement experience, how do you go about getting endorsed? And should you shoot for smaller companies when you're first trying to get endorsed? I play for the University of Houston's Basketball Band and I think it would be a good opportunity for a company to endorse...

    Should you push to learn how to read music?

    I couldn't disagree more.... first the skills and muscle dexterity used to play drums are fundamentally NO different than any other instruments - certainly no more difficult to master.... and in many cases, far easier to master initially. And the degree we do or don't use "drum charts" on gigs...
